Double Trouble 79 - Gnome in Green

Welcome to Double Trouble Challenge 79!

This week, it's all about magical things - unicorns, gnomes, fairies, etc. The extra twist is to use a die. The small graphic is below. Please visit the Double Trouble website for additional information. 

This card was created as I was making a pile of cards using Close To My Heart's Floral Layering Dies. They are a set of three dies that create a gorgeous background - the colour combinations are endless. For this card, I used Clover cardstock for the base and the layers are dusty purple glitter paper, Willow cardstock and finally an inked layer on top that was created using Distress Oxide inks. 

The gnome was stamped, coloured and die cut and mounted with thin foam tape. I wanted the background to be very open so I didn't add anything other than a sentiment. 

Come and join us at Double Trouble and show us how you interpret this week's challenge. 

I am also linking up my project with the Dies R Us challenge
